Bursts of color
It’s no secret that color can brighten your mood, and no one knew that more than artist Dorothy Gillespie. Best known for her large-scale enameled metal sculptures, Gillespie’s work explodes in joyous color. Just being in the vicinity of her playful pieces at our very own Cameron Art Museum will spark a smile. And, so could you, with a few wardrobe tweaks.
Silks are top of the fabric list for 2021, and luckily, they look oh-so-luxe in bold tones. If you’re not ready for full-on, all-day color, focusing on one bright garment – like the kimono jacket featured here – could be your way to go.
Sure, it’s easy to throw on some shades of gray and slink out the door, but why not serve some happiness instead? Dorothy would certainly approve.
